Co-president Activities & Events

Sophie Bennett

Hi I’m Soph, your new Co-President Activities & Events! I’ll be spending the next year working closely with societies, students and sports teams in the SOAS community to ensure you never have a dull moment here at SOAS. We’ll be filling the year with parties, spoken word, networking events, open mic nights, panel discussions, stand-up comedy, dance lessons, martial arts, banner making, sports and much more.

For me, it is events like these that has made SOAS far more than what I learnt in the classroom. And more importantly, it is the people I met at these events that made my 3 years unforgettable. At SOAS you have the opportunity to create friends from every corner of the world and that rich diversity is something we will be celebrating throughout the year.

This year at SOAS we saw many more society-led late licences and their immense success; this allowed the JCR and the S.U. Bar to become a central space in which we celebrate our community. I intend on continuing this energy into the coming year and would love to hear from you if you have an idea; I’m here to facilitate!

Finally, if you would like to start a new society for our ever-growing community of over 150, please email me ( or come into the office (G8). Chances are, other students would like to see the same!
